On the Leyline is the eighth studio album by Ocean Colour Scene. It was released on 30 April 2007 and entered the UK album charts on 6 May 2007, peaking at No.37, lasting only a single week in the top 75.[1]

Releases[edit]

The album contains a Paul Weller song entitled "For Dancers Only" (later released by Weller and Graham Coxon under the name "This Old Town"). The fourth track ("Man in the Middle"), was written by the band's bass guitarist, Dan Sealey. The first single, "I Told You So", was released two weeks before the album release on 16 April and reached number 34 in the UK singles charts. The second single released from the album was "I Just Got Over You" which entered and peaked at number 112 following little attention from the music press. The album's third single, "Go to Sea (Radio Edit)", was released on 12 November 2007 as a free download via the band's official website. This was to promote their then-forthcoming Christmas tour.[2] The single became the first Ocean Colour Scene single to fail to chart since 1992.
